SCBS has been utilizing infrared remote trail cameras (the type normally used for scouting) to monitor wildlife usage at water developments. This work is important to gage the effect that our water developments are having on wildlife conservation, desert bighorn sheep in particular. These cameras need to have the batteries and memory cards changed frequently so that we do not have any gaps in data. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer to help establish and maintain these trail cameras please contact Bob Burke. If you are not able to perform field work but would like to help we also could use a few volunteers to review and catalog all of the photos.
To fulfill our obligation to desert bighorn sheep conservation, sometimes it is necessary for us to haul water to developments that have run dry. This is never easy and always happens in the most critical time of the year - summer - when it's very hot in the desert. We can always use more volunteers.
